Scary post 2

I’ve just met a new reader via the comments box on Jam Today and it’s been really lovely. I love knowing who reads my blog and how they got here, but it’s not often I find out.

A couple of years ago, I asked regular readers to make de-lurking comments - in other words, to write something – anything  - in the comments section  below. The result was so encouraging. It was so NICE to hear from people who visit here often.

So, today I am asking for a de-lurking comment from you! Yes, you! You don’t have to tell me your real name.Your comments don’t have to be clever or witty. You could just say “Hello from” wherever you live. Or you could ask me a question – which I will do my best to answer.  Something, anything would be nice to get. If you’ve commented before, don’t let that stop you!

Your comment will not be posted until I have seen it – I get an email from Blogger -  so don’t think you have failed if nothing appears straightaway.

This post is a “Scary post”because I might get no comments from anyone, and then  I’d feel really really stupid.

Bakewell weather report:

It’s sunny again here today! And last night at 9 it was so still and quiet, I walked round the front garden, soaking up the loveliness, and ended up on my slackline. Because it has rained so often lately, on the days when it’s been fine I have spent all my outdoor time either gardening, picking fruit, walking, cycling, or just sitting in my steamer chair soaking up the unfamiliar sun: the slackline has been neglected. I can still do a dozen steps on it. Maybe one day I will get from one end to the other. Maybe I won’t. But I do like trying.

My Fiancée first showed me your blog a few days ago and I've been reading ever since. You have a beautiful family and your words truly open eyes to just how wonderful the simple things in life really are. Thank you and please don't ever stop writing.

Thank you for bothering to comment! I really appreciate it.

Ditto to Steven's comment - and as regards the slackline, we have all been wondering.

Great to see pure concentration in action.

Hi Sue,

I have been inspired to make jam after reading your last few posts - wish me luck...I'll need it, my patchwork quilt project has come to a complete standstill and I'd say it's 5% finished? ;-) Hmmm re: best time to come to England, it depends where you're going, Cornwall is nice anytime of the year I in London I love it around Xmas time, so the end of the year is when I'd recommend visitors to come.

I'm still a faithful follower. I particularly enjoy the photos and descriptions of your gardens, your surrounding geography (including the Monsal Trail), and your beautiful grandchildren. Thank you for continuing to share so much with the world.

Hi Jacob, nice to hear from you again. It's interesting to hear which posts you enjoy most.
Hi Shafia, My latest patchwork project has been all over my study carpet for two weeks as I try to work out which arrangement I like best. Good luck with the jam!

Hello from the AH in Redwood City. Great job on that slack line. It is hard! I love your blog!

Hi there, Aging Hippie, I'm so pleased you told everyone how hard it is on the slack line - having had a go yourself! It is, dear readers, much harder than it looks. And the height is not an issue for me - it's the balance.
